    8/3/10 (from my log)

    I totally agree -- we HAVE made HUGELY MASSIVE progress. We've gotten those monkey's off our backs and that is a substantial change for both of us. We are becoming a couple of seriously strong women - mentally, physically, emotionally (some days better than others) ... still, there you go.

    Well La Di Freaking Da

    I weighed myself this morning ....... 222! I guess my gut feeling (hahahah - no pun intended) was incorrect that I had gained back a bunch of weight. So, provided that I pull my head out of my ass, there's a chance I might actually lose some weight this week. Just need to get under 220. I'll feel super good!!!

    I'm feeling just downright down in the gutters right now. I've been trying to identify the reasons that I am feeling so blue. I'm not 100% sure why, but it's starting to annoy me. Go figure. I've become so annoying that I've even annoyed myself. That's swell. I did manage to go for a walk this evening, though it's not even close to the amount of exercise I should have done. I know that I've gained about 4 pounds back - which puts me back at 226. I fucking feel like I'm NEVER going to get there. I identified a couple things that I think are causing some of my melancholy-ness -- (1) Nathan's driving me crazy. (2) I have no idea where I'm going with my life. My job is a dead end, but I'm not ready or confident enough to jump ship because I want to start a family and just feel like I need to wait and see what happens over the next year or so before I make a career move. But, seeing that Nathan losing his job has put a big wrench in that plan, who fucking knows. (3) I want to go back to school, but there's no feasible way we can do that financially. So that's a no go until who knows when. (4) I need to get myself on a workout schedule. And not just a schedule that says I'm going to the gym 4 times a week. I need a schedule like Monday, I do this and Tuesday, I do that and so on. Ugggg....You know what I want to do right now? Eat. This is a dangerous place for me to be. I'm teetering right on the edge of falling off the back of the wagon and I'm trying to let the rational part of my brain keep my weight moving forward, but the other part of my brain keeps saying "what's it going to hurt? it's just one night ... go ahead. go get that half gallon of ice cream and eat it all in one sitting." Nah. Maybe I'll just go cry. That's sure to burn some calories, right?

    The Breakup

    Wow. I don't know which to feel first ... the enjoyment of reading your excellent "Dear Dairy/Gluten" letter or the sorrow of reading that you have to say goodbye to such good friends. It is comforting to know, however, that you will not be allow in your quest for true happiness with food. I raise a glass of crystal clear water to you and HSLM.

    The Breakup

    Oh hello dear confessional of Daily Burn. It's been awhile since I last saw you. I can't lie. I've thought of you often. I just was too embarrassed to come talk to you. You see, it was a rough weekend. Let's just say that it included WAY more drama than I wanted and it kinda pushed me over the edge. I was optimistic when I woke up on Saturday morning, but I quickly realized that I just needed to eat. And eat a lot. So, I did. And then yesterday was yet filled with more drama. To soothe the pain of the drama, I resorted to a late dinner at an Italian restaurant. Filled with lots of bread, salads with too much dressing, and a big plate of pasta smothered in spicy cream sauce and artichoke hearts and sun dried tomatoes. Truly was heaven on a plate. And then the evening was made complete with a sundae (fitting that it happened on Sunday) at DQ. I must say that by the time I got home, I was feeling a lot better. Didn't even feel guilty about the fact that I had just consumed more calories in one meal than is allotted in an entire day. However, today, I feel like a bus ran over me. Almost called in from the stomach ache and the congestion and then overall malaise. But, I am a trooper and I made it in. Though, we'll have to see where this stomach leads me. If it decides to hang out on my most favorite of days (Monday), then we're going to have to have a little talk. One thing has become glaringly apparent. I must go gluten and dairy free. There is no other choice in the matter. I have to seize the challenge and face it head on and win. To win, I need to stick with it for at least 4-6 weeks before I test any of the problem foods on my body. Course, by that point, I'm kinda hoping that I will have put enough distance between myself and my lover, cheese, and my other lover, sourdough bread, that I won't even be tempted to run back into the arms of a creamy Havarti or sharp (yet comforting) cheddar or a golden brown, soft and chewy sourdough. I just have to take comfort in the fact that I CAN do it. And I'm not alone. My HSLM is going gluten and dairy free to see if it helps clear up some health problems as well. So, as a team, we can do it. But, I must bid a fond farewell to my sweet old friends, gluten and dairy. You both have given me so much -- however, I wish you would have been a little less willing to give me the congestion. I understand that while you both can live a healthy life on your grains and whey, I cannot live a healthy life on your grains and whey. I am sad, but must move on (after I eat my leftover pasta for lunch). Farewell old friends -- I may or may not see you again (after about 11:00am today). I appreciate your support, but must move on. It's not you. It's me. I hope you can find someone who really appreciates you in a way that I never could.
